Use Broadcast when you want to send the same message to each of the child controls contained within the windowed control. Specify the message to be passed as the value of the Message parameter

BeginDrag(Immediate: Boolean; Threshold: Integer):
Call BeginDrag to start a drag operation. BeginDrag is called in application code only when the value of the control's DragMode is dmManual. If DragMode is dmAutomatic, BeginDrag is called automatically. If the Immediate parameter is true, the mouse pointer changes to the value of the DragCursor property and dragging begins immediately. If Immediate is false, the mouse pointer doesn't change to the value of the DragCursor property and dragging doesn't begin until the user moves the mouse pointer the number of pixels specified by the Threshold parameter. If the caller passes a Threshold value less than 0 (such as the default value for this parameter), BeginDrag uses the DragThreshold property of the global Mouse variable. Setting Immediate to false allows the control to accept mouse clicks without beginning a drag-and-drop or drag-and-dock operation.

CanFocus: Call CanFocus to find out if the control can receive input from the user. CanFocus returns true if both the control and its parent(s) have their Visible and Enabled properties set to true. If any of the Visible and Enabled properties of the control or the controls in which it is contained are not true, then CanFocus returns false.
If EmbeddedWb1.CanFocus then...
